Opening Ceremony Winners

opening ceremonyFun and games at the opening ceremony as usual! We had a mini game of Sonic. Speed was the essence here, best time completing the green hill zone stage 1. Four competitors stepped up to the match but it was Ddanblack who sprinted to the finish with a time of 36 seconds a clear 5 seconds ahead of the others. He won himself an InWin mouse mat and other goodies.Next up we had 5 people who attempted to guess what the mystery prize was from InWin. They had to do it in the style of 'who's line is it anyway?' by acting out what they thought it was. The Small Guy was deemed to be the winner with the best act. He won the mystery prize which was an InWin hard drive cover and also some tablet from our friend Graeme at Kustom PC's.

epic.ELEVEN - Pub Quiz

Pub QuizOne of the biggest tournaments of the event is our regular pub quiz, taking place on the Friday at around 8pm (subject to Winbar time). We've brought the team size cap back in to effect this event with 8 people maximum in a team, and we'll be making sure there are plenty of tables around so teams don't have to share this time.

As a teaser, some of the rounds you can look forward to this time include:

  • Gaming Music
  • General Knowledge
  • Entertainment
  • Sports
  • Current Affairs
  • Who Am I?
  • Music
  • TV Sitcoms
  • And our super special bonus rounds!

To take part, just assemble your team in the gallery around 8pm on the Friday armed with £1 per person and a suitably amusing team name.

epic.ELEVEN - Prepare to LAN!

epic.SEVEN Check InPlease help us to speed up the check-in process and keep the queues down by doing the following:

If you are planning on spectating the event, paying for a participant place on the door (if there are spaces remaining) or you have visitors coming to see you, please create a spectator booking on the system in advance, it's still fine to pay on the door, but will save time on the day.

Remember, the doors open at 4pm, if you arrive any earlier, we'll have to ask you to wait in the downstairs bar (open from 2pm) until we are ready for you.

On another note, please make sure you update your games before you attend to help us save bandwidth at the event.

See you on Thursday! And don't forget to go through our handy checklist while you're packing to make sure you don't forget anything!

epic.ELEVEN - The Hunt is on

epic.HUNT ReturnsAs announced back in March, the epic.HUNT is back for this event.

For those of you who haven't taken part in this sort of puzzle before, the idea for this event comes from a concept used at Dreamhack (the DH Game), and various other worldwide puzzle-hunt type games. This particular hunt takes you through a series of purely digital and event-based clues to lead you to the right answer for each question.

 

This game is a test of your initiative, knowledge, lateral thinking, puzzle solving, code-breaking and some creative image/sound processing skill.

 

The game can be played solo or as a team (up to 8 people), if you choose to join or create a team you will be locked to it for the remainder of the event. If you win while in a team the leader will be in charge of the prize.

 

The hunt is continuous, but you can stop for a rest at any time, though if you do, there's nothing to stop the other players overtaking your position. Questions will be released in the following phases:

  • Thursday 21:30 - Teaser Round
  • Friday 12:00 - Round One
  • Saturday 14:00 - Round Two (Final)

Signup details will be released on Thursday evening at the event.
